is interesting to me, having read the memo that was presented to us and also in the presentation, is that there is no mention of the planning commission. it is extremely perturbing to think of the department as a separate entity from this commission. so i think the process to me is flawed. from the standpoint that it is the commission that makes the decisions. it is the commission to whom staff makes all their presentations. it is the commission to whom the audience and the public and interest groups and developers and property owners and others are speaking to, and yet, the entire program we have been presented has to do with department staff, so i am not ready to vote to support or wherever the action is that we are being asked to do today. and i think that it is also -- i do not know if it is telling for -- under program parties, you are using the word " branding." that is extremely disturbing to me, to use that word when we talk about a public department. are we trying to sell the department and commission to the public like we are through advertising a product or something?

, a lot of people would have wondered why seniors would want to use computers, but that has shifted. over the next few years, as all of us move toward being seniors, we will not be wanting technology. we will be demanding it. the field is going to change, and more and more people are going to be here. so the ability to make technology accessible is there. those of us charged with doing this have a really important role. we have to be able to provide the tools for the technology in ways that the people can hear. i am happy to be your speaking with you because i think this is an incredibly important topic. this afternoon, there is a workshop on addressing multiple barriers for accessing technology, and it will be a brainstorming session where someone from my office and a couple of other people will be leading a discussion of what issues people run into and how you deal with them. i think it is a really important topic and i think it is probably one of the most important things people could be talking about now. for all of us, technology is here and going to be here, and we all need it. than

with the war on drugs was leading us in the wrong direction. the impact that it had and not only in communities -- quite frankly in our entire community was creating a situation which doesn't necessarily make us any safer and frankly, i think we have criminalized an area i think should be really looked upon as a health issue more than as a criminal issue, and i think consequently, a lot of the solutions we have tried in the last 2 1/2 decades have taken us to a place where today we cannot afford it economically. i can tell you that socially we have been broken for many years, but now the economic peace of it has come to play and that's probably why, quite frankly, we are reacting. i think we can deal with being socially bankrupt much easier than we can deal with being economically bankrupt. i think now we've come to the point where there's an intersection between the two. having said that, i also think it's important to recognize simply taking people that are broken, because most of the people that have drug addictions are people that are broken, and just simply releasing them on to the streets

nuclear weapons program, you give us legitimacy for what we are doing and a broad an deep nuclear program and we'll be satisfied if assad falls, that would be a disastrous deal for the west but it is one iran could well angle for and tying it all together is very much behind the idea of hosting peace talks among the syrian factions. >> eric: do you think that is a deal the obama administration would take? and could be offered? >> well, let me be clear. i think it is a disastrous deal but yes, i think the obama administration would be inclined to take it. since their diplomacy, both with respect to iran's nuclear weapons program and the ongoing civil war in syria, has been such a failure. being able to amass a successive diplomacy would give them something, even though the end result i think would be very, very risky for the united states and israel and our arab friends in the region serving it comes as the panetta report came out which is troubling, potentially, they are developing a missile that they think could hit the united states within three years. i mean, that report, ambassador, w
societies, europe and elsewhere, though their rates of nonviolent crime and drug use are not that much different than ours. so if another country were to lock up its own people at the rate that we do, and if our rates of incarceration were more normative to the rest of the world, we would regard with that other country was doing as a massive violation of human rights. that's the way we would look at it. now, the other point here is what we're doing is not even consistent with american history. i mean, we had 500,000 people behind bars in 1980 and now we have 2.3 million, 2.4 million people behind bars and almost have 5,000 people behind bars just for a drug violation. there are as many people behind bars for a drug violation than we had for everything in 1980. it's not consistent with global standards and not consistent with our own history. it's costing a vast amount of money and i think what you see is for some of the d.a.'s and others are beginning to say enough is enough. we're seeing prison populations beginning to decline but when it comes down to the question, who are the first

the specific tactics we have been using to educate business owners about the new policy, first we mailed an official notice in three languages to approximately 10,000 san francisco businesses. we led businesses know -- let businesses know about five outreach events. we also mailed a small placard they can use as an example of how to reach materials -- example of outreach materials of the point of sale so they can be very clear as to when the ordinance is engaged. the mailing was targeted to the retail businesses but would be impacted, october 1. iwe plan the second mailing fora year from now when that impacts restaurants. in addition, we are hosting 5 vendor events. the idea is to bring business owners together with the vendors selling products that meet the definition of the reusable bag, what is available to them, other than a single use plastic bindeag, to really use that opportunity to get merchants to look at what is susceptible -- what is acceptable and to educate them when they are making buying decisions so they are educated and are asking important questions so the bags they are
the height of the violence in iraq during the u.s. occupation there. of course, the u.s. government frequently accused the damascus regime of doing that. he specifically singled out the brother-in-law of syrian president bashar al assad. he claims that the brother-in-law was running an al qaeda in iraq safe haven, safe house, on the syrian-iraqi border that was targeted by a u.s. cross-border military operation in october 2008. this defector ambassador claims he talk to the brother-in-law who was at that camp an hour after the u.s. troops targeted it, and that he was furious that it had been hit by u.s. forces. of course, we have not -- cannot get comment from the syrian government thus far about these claims, but the u.s. government was open about the fact that it targeted this camp in october of 2008, hitting what it claimed was an al qaeda in iraq militant. >> does this former ambassador believe that others from the regime will be defecting following his suit? >> well, he said that there are not many ambassadors left to defect because many of them have already been expelled from
and sin no more. and if you do, you'll be back here to see us. and so, i think that once again, i go back to the fact that under the current system, because we have so many of those individuals who were once incarcerated at the state level, being pushed down to the counties, there's no room at the end in terms of the county jails. so misdemeanors aren't going to be sentenced to county jail but will be sentenced in community service or whatever. and for those individuals who do need some measure of control and supervision to deal about -- deal with their conviction problems, it's not going to happen at the misdemeanor level. >> let me go to a couple of the questions from the audience. i've shared them with our district attorney. george, two questions there, one related to whether or not drug possession should be treated differently for adults than from juveniles. and then a question about back on track, whether or not that program would be positively or adversely affected by senator leno's proposal. >> yes, let me start with the first question concerning juveniles. i think juveniles defini
